You may be wondering how you should act. If you have signed or if you are asked to sign a non-competition agreement, it is important for you to clarify whether the agreement has lawful grounds.
The validity of a non-competition agreement shall always be assessed on a case by case basis.

To make sure that you will benefit from the agreement, you should check if your agreement is legally valid.
